Being English I’m obviously not going to be able to get away from the jubilee and will more then likely attend some kind of party to celebrate the event, even if i am going to be out of the country for the start of the celebrations.
So here are a few items I found around Etsy to help us get into the jubilee party spirit!
You can find the treasury here :
Vintage Jubilee Bunting
What british party isn’t complete without bunting?
I love the vintage feel of this particular bunting and it would definitely suit this event perfectly!
Union Jack Party Dress
No one can deny that Geri Halliwell wasn’t patriotic, so why not make yourself a more *ahem* classy version of her Spice Girl days.
This dress looks beautifully made and definitely makes our flag seem very stylish!
Silver Corgi Pendant
The queen is known for loving Corgi’s, so why not spread the love with this adorable necklace pendant? I just love the intricate detailing which makes this cute pendant just a little bit special and regal looking.
Union Jack Tote Bag
This denim tote bag would be perfect for carrying all your jubilee party items, not to mention a very stylish bag all year round.
Gold Crown Ring
There is no queen without a crown, as this listings name tells us. And this dainty little ring is perfect for making you feel maybe just a little bit like royalty.
British Tea Party Garland
If you’re hosting a tea party for the big day then why not decorate your room to match the theme with this adorably vintage looking garland!
It’s bound to become the talking point for any gathering.
Union Jack Cufflinks
One for the men, we can’t leave them out of the celebrations after all. These cufflinks would be a very patriotic addition to any suit. All that’s missing is a union jack tie.
Union Jack Ring
If the men, however, cannot find a tie, then this ring would also be a good choice. It’s available in a range of colours and customisations.
Mens Leather Union Jack Jacket
However, if your man wants to make more of a statement (and doesn’t mind forking out a lot of money for it) then what about this jacket? I can almost imagine an old fashioned british army officer wearing this.
Heart Pill box Hat
Obviously you’re going to need a hat for the special day as it seems all big posh events require some kind of head garment. How about this cute little number, it matches the colour scheme and is bound to make any outfit a little extra special with those cute bows.
Herkimer Diamond Earrings
Its the Diamond jubilee so we obviously need some diamonds, these Herkimer Diamond earrings may not be real Diamonds, despite the name, but we can’t all afford the real thing can we? These will still give an amazing sparkle to your earlobes. The gold casing even makes these seem just a little crown like!
Diamond Jubilee Mug
As there seems to be a lot of talk about ‘Tea Parties’ obviously you’ll need a place to store your tea. This mug seems to do the job, complete with a choice of two commemorative designs!
Diamond Jubilee Tea Towel
Of course after the gallons of tea us Brits will obviously be drinking, you’ll need to wash up the mugs. What better than a matching jubilee tea towel? Especially one as snazzy as this!
You can never have enough bunting, so why not decorate your neck as well as your house! This cute bunting necklace comes in 3 different patterns.
Corgi Dog Brooch
You can never have too many corgi’s! At least not if you’re the royal family…And this brooch would be the perfect way to decorate your union jack dress or bag.
Corgi Cushion Cover
I’m sure you’ve all wanted to use your fluffy corgi as a cushion before, right? This cushion is not only cute and comfy, but it also doesn’t wriggle as much.
I hope you like these items as much as I do.
Till next time!
Today I will be going to the UK Etsy meet up in London and decided I needed to make some special jewellery to wear for the occasion. I haven’t kept many of my handmade items for myself as I feel guilty when looking at the mounds of jewellery i already own.
But for christmas I was given some beads from my mum’s boyfriend that I was under strict instructions to use for myself, as I really should start wearing my own things. I mean if i’m not going to wear it why would anyone else?
Plus I feel this kind event really does need me to advertise my wares so i really needed to knuckle down and make some items.
The only problem was, i’ve been lacking inspiration for a long time and had no idea what to make. So, i decided to rummage through my jewellery box and came across an old necklace that i hadn’t worn for ages. This necklace sparked some ideas in my mind and I suddenly went on a productive streak managing to make 3 necklaces and 3 pairs of earrings in the space of a few hours!
Pink and Pearl Heart Necklace
Cute pink and cheerful, bit more girly than i’m used to, but I like it any way. It has a string of pearls broken up by pink and gold coloured beads and a large gold heart pendant.
Flower Dangle Earrings
Again cute and girly. These special flower beads seemed to suit the pearls beautifully to create a cute pair of earrings perfect for spring.
This necklace has actually been made to sell. A string of pearls separated by a cute fish bead. A fun and quirky necklace for those who like the unusual.
Blue Chain Earrings
An eye catching pair of earrings made to to make a statement.
I also made a pair of earrings for my sister’s birthday as the present i really made her was a big fail. I made them to match a dress she already owns. Unfortunately I do not have a picture of them for you. Maybe another time.
In other news, our flat now has pets!
They are completely self reliant in their own little ecosystem, they require no feeding, cleaning or any other pet related chores. The perfect animal for forgetful me!
